Strategic Retreat

Many blogs and websites talk about bugging out, B.O.B.'s and B.O.V.'s. Much is said about routes and locations, plans and such. But not a lot is said about triggers. What will trigger your B.O.P. (bug out plan)?

Oh, I know they talk about hurricanes, fires, floods and other natural disasters. But what about economic collapse or social disorder?

How about War or Martial Law?

What about food scarcity?

Preparing for these items requires something more than a bugout unless you are JWR's neighbor or part of preparedness group.

These events call for a strategic retreat; a move away from targets and percieved threats to a safer haven.

That is what I am doing.

This may be my last blog entry for some time while I am relocating.

A friend of mine who has been after me to move to his location for years has made me an offer too good to refuse. So I am going to go. I hope to be re-established within 3 to 6 months, but I have a lot of moving to do and his place is 300+ miles from mine.

Thank you to all of my readers. In my mind, you have made my blog something to be proud of. I am sorry this last month's posts were so sparse, but when you have a personal SHTF situation, it can take all of your mental focus to deal with that issue alone.

God bless you all and watch over you in these troubled times.
Take care.
